Storyline

Samantha, a young woman, frustrated by her unsuccessful blind dates, stumbles into a photo exhibition and sees and likes the photographer. She writes him an email. However, the email is intercepted by the photographer's son, who uses his father's identity to arrange a date for his widowed father, because he does not like his father's blonde manager and fears that she could become his stepmother. The son invites Samantha, still in his father's name. When she arrives, the identity theft is, of course, uncovered, and an embarrassed Samantha turns around and tries to go home. But their fate may still have some unexpected twists and turns in stock for them. Written by Hans-Georg Michna

Alternate Versions

When Sam is first taken to Jackson's Diner, in "Chance for Romance" Heath tells her not to worry, he has a tab there so she won't need to pay, and Heath apologizes for forgetting her name. She tells him Wuthering Heights is her favorite book and assumes he is named for Heathcliff; he responds he is actually named for the candy bar, which his Mom was eating when she met his Dad. This entire discussion is not included in "Friend Request." See more »
